A benefit event for Operation Warrior Wellness brought together government officials, veterans, and celebrities with one goal: To raise awareness of Post Traumatic Stress and its successful treatment using Transcendental Meditation (TM).

Operation Warrior Wellness, a division of the David Lynch Foundation, organized the event on 4 August in New York City.

One of the speakers was US Representative Michael G Grimm, of the 13th District of New York.

Mr Grimm, a veteran himself, spoke of the unique challenges facing military personnel and first responders.

'I can't even imagine what our troops are feeling when they're coming home from multiple tours in Afganistan and Iraq, but I do know this: They need our help in getting through the stress that they're dealing with. That's why I want to say thank you to Ed [Schloeman, Co-Chair of Operation Warrior Wellness], . . . thank you to all of you for supporting this incredible endeavour.'

Of utilizing Transcendental Meditation as a treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress, Mr Grimm said, 'It's not even the fact that it's so cost effective, it's that it's so effective. This could change the lives, and save the lives, of so many of our heroes. . . . So if we really want to honour them and if we want to give back a little and say thank you to them and their entire family that sacrifice along with them, then we need your support.'

Later on in the evening, actress and singer Connie Stevens was recognized for her support of Operation Warrior Wellness.

She told the audience, 'The best part of living at my ripe age is that I get to do what I want to do, and the thing that I want to do is help as many veterans as I possibly can.'
